Of his qualities and his devotion to the School, two mem- bers of the Staff who knew him over a period of more than twenty years, have written eloquently and their joint tribute will be found within. Otherwise, apart from this brief edit- orial, the Magazine is as he had completed it and to those who have understanding, his personality will be found everywhere within its pages. With his passing, we can say with Tennyson : "The old order changeth. yeilding place to new. And Cod fulfils Himself in many ways Lest one good custom should corrupt the world. " It would be only fitting here to pay tribute also to two other loyal members of the Staff who served the School for many years: Miss Bowden and Major Howden have at last retired. Between them they have a record of more than fifty years service to the School. That they should enjoy a well earned rest is the sincere wish of us all. The Governors having honoured me on the 6th August with the appointment to the Headmastership, may I take this opportunity to offer a hearty welcome to Old Boys visiting the School. The strength of the School is measured not so much by numbers but by the quality of its products. The loyalty and devotion of the Old Boys is a measure of this quality and in them the spirit of the School continues long after they have left its walls and fields. It is to them, therefore, that I make this request. Take an active interest in School affairs, public- ize it among your friends and, best of all, visit it whenever vou can. J. J. T. THE REV. G. H. SCAKRETT, B.A. Assistant Master, Lniversity School 1910-1935 Headmaster, University School 1935-1948 mite Mttt. CScouTC l^erbert #carrett, |^.^. On July 29th, 1948, University School suffered a severe blow in the passing of the Rev. G. H. Scarrett who had served first as Assist- ant Master, and then as Headmaster, for 28 years. The late Headmaster was bom in Leek, Staffordshire, England, and taught at Alexander School, Broadstairs, and Skelsmergh School, Margate before coming to Canada in 1911, where for three years he taught at Bobcaygeon, Ontario. During the Great War he served with commissioned rank in the Prince Rupert Regiment, and some years later he took his Batchelor of Arts degree at Queens University, Kingston. In 1920 he came to University School from the Collegiate School in Victoria, and immediately became a vital force in the life of the institution he was to serve so well. While his main sphere of influence was the classroom, he took an active interest in all school activities, and the excellence of the School Cadet Band over the years is attributable to his boundless enthusiasm for this particular form of endeavour. In 1935 he was appointed Headmaster. University School was then at its lowest ebb: but for his unshakeable faith and indomitable courage it could never have survived the critical years which fol- lowed. Outside the School one of his main interests was Scouting, and he was for some years Scout Commisioner. Always a keen churchman he was in 1936 ordained in the Re- formed Episcopal Church, and in 1945 his ordination in. the ministry of the Church of England took place in Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria. Such, then, is a brief outline of his origin and life. Of the man himself, of what he meant to the School and to those who knew him long and well, a volume might be written. Yet, in truth, no volume is needed, for his personality is stamped in letters of brass, not only on the grounds and buildings of the School, but also upon the very souls and characters of a thousand boys. A man of iron-clad determination, believing steadfastly and irrefutably in an unswerving line of Traditional Education, he never deviated a hair's breadth from his chosen course. It is perhaps true to say that his outstanding characteristic, well-nigh unique in these days of appease- ment and compromise, was his utter constancy. Quod dixi, dixi. To those who worked with him this inflexible constancy was a rock to which they could cling with complete reliance in the frequent vortices of School life. Perhaps, at times, his unbending rigour hid from others the kinder side of the man: possibly he was glad that this was so. Of his valour in all things, of his unremitting toil, of his mag- nificent achievements, especially in the dark days of 1935, there is no possible doubt. No other man who has been connected with the School could have done what he did in the years of difficulty. His labours during his Headmastership were unceasing; never for a moment did he spare himself; it is beyond doubt that he gave his life to, and for, the School. Softness, weakness, half-measures were anathema to him. Only too often the unbending rigour of his prescription would blind both physician and patient to the honest, deeper longing for spiritual wel- fare that lay below his stem control: but those who took the medicine he gave lived to thank the giver and to know the cleansing powers that were his. Perhaps he was the last of an Old Regime: we may not look upon his like again. Others may take his place in the years that lie before the School. To fill his place is not within their power: his niche in the line of Headmasters is his own and very bravely and very fully has he filled it. If he is in any need of an epitaph other than the stones of the buildings and the lives of his boys, perhaps it might read HIC ET SEMPER LABORIS EXEMPLAR ET INTERPRES SCHOOL NOTES CONGRATULATIONS TO— Duke as the Ker Cup winner for 1948; Fox as the winner of the Don Hugh Chapman Cup for 1948; Duke as the Senior Sports Champion ; Pollard as Intermediate Champion ; Bigelow as Junior Champion ; Burnett as the winner of the Cross Country Race for the second year in succession; Cadet Captain Cotter I, Officers, N.C.O.'s, and Mr. Cropper on the outstanding achievements of the Cadet Corps ; Ballantyne on passing with merit the Royal Schools of Music — Theory — Grade VI ; Strang on passing the Royal Conservatory of ^lusic, Tor- onto.

Our thanks are also due to I\Ir. Riddle of Portland, Oregon, who presented the School with a quantity of badly needed incidental note pads. Last September we extended a cordial welcome to ^Ir. R. E. Allen who joined the Staff for Resident Duty during the year. ^Mr. Allen has now completed his Normal School Course and has left us to take a full time teaching position. Our best wishes go with him. A Confirmation Service was held at St. Luke's on Tues- day, May 11th. A large congregation attended the Service at which Branson, Brown II, Brown III, Colquhoun, Laing, Legg-Willis, Sundt II and Wilson, were confirmed by the Lord Bishop of British Columbia. The candidates were presented by the Headmaster after which his Lordship gave an appro- priate address for the occasion. The 42nd Founders' Day was observed as usual at the School on October 7th. The Headmaster gave an address in which he outlined the Founding of the School and its achieve- ments throughout the years. He referred particularly to the ideals of the Founders and the achievements of the Old Boys of the School in the matter of War Service and expressed the hope that the present boys would, in due time, be worthy suc- cessors. On November 11th, the Armistice Day Service was held at 10:45 in the Front Hall. The Headmaster took the Service which was attended by all the boys and jnembers of the staff. Capt. Harvey's last letter written to the boys in 1914 was read as well as the names of those who lost their lives in the two Wars. FollowinK the usual prayers and intercessions, the School Wreath was laid on the Honour Roll by Hodgkinson. The Service closed at 11:00 with the sounding of the Last Post by the trumpeters of the Cadet Corps Band after which the boys paid their respects before the Honour Roll, leaving by the front door. "The Spirit" has finally gone into dignified retirement after many years of faithful service and, with a quizzical eye, watches a visiting tractor tow the "cherubim" round the field. The driveway in front of the School buildings has been greatly improved by the addition of kerbs which add to the neatness of the approach. Further additions are being made. As usual, Mr. Beaumont kindly offered the School a picnic on his launch. Our thanks are due to him: the fact that the weather prevented the picnic in no way lessens our gratitude to this good friend. Boys of the upper forms were lucky in having the oppor- tunity of seeing Macbeth, performed at the Royal Victoria by Donald Wolfitt's London Company. Such treats come all too seldom. They also attended a performance of Amateur Dra- matics in which several Old Boys took part at the Normal School. We tender our thanks to the Signals Officer, H.M.C.S. Naden, who kindly lent us a large number of flags and pen- nants with which the Gymnasium was decorated on Sports Day and Speech Day. The School enjoyed a welcome Half-Holiday on the oc- casion of the wedding of T. H. The Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh. We extend our best wishes to Commodore W. B. Creery, C.B.E., R.C.N. (1910-1914), who is leaving his command at H.M.C.S. Royal Roads to take up an appointment at Ottawa. We shall miss his frequent visits to the School. The Governors have appointed IMr. J. J. Timmis, M.A. (Oxon) Headmaster. ACADEMIC RESULTS— JUNE 1947 The results of the Matriculation Examinations were very creditable. R. M.

Legg-Willis SPEECH DAY The 42nd Annual Speech Day was held on Friday, June 18th. The Rev. F. H. Cosgrave, formerly Provost and Vice- Chancellor of Trinity College, Toronto, addressed the visitors and boys and presented the prizes for the year. The Headmaster welcomed a large gathering of parents and visitors, some of whom had come from a considerable dis- tance to be present for the ceremony. In his Report, he re- ferred to the excellent showing made by the boys in the De- partmental Examinations last year and commented on all the Activities during the year. He made special refere-nce to the outstanding success of the Cadet Corps, Shooting, Rugby Foot- ball, Cricket, Boxing and Gymnastics. He then introduced and welcomed the guest speaker, The Rev. Dr. Cosgrave, who addressed the boys reminding them of the purpose of School life and, now that their School days were over, to put into practice the vital things they had learned while at school. Mr. F. E. Winslow, O.B.E., Chairman of the Board of Governors, thanked Dr. Cosgrave for his excellent address and for its message and inspiration. Dr. Cosgrave then presented the prizes according to the following list: PRIZE LIST Form VI 1st E. P. Rimmer Va lst...D. J. Ballantyne 2nd R. I. Strang Vb 1st D. L. Newton 2nd G. T. L. Read IV 1st R.

The weather was ideal for the occasion. Competition, especially in the Open events, was keen. There were no records broken as the Track was unusually heavy for this time of the year. About five hundred guests, parents, Old Boyr. and friends of the School attended. Following the first half of the pro- gramme, tea was served as usual in the School Gymnasium. Following the events, the visitors and boys gathered around the School Steps and the Headmaster welcomed the guests and introduced to them, Mr. Archie McKinnon, Phys- ical Director, Y.M.C.A., who was to present the prizes. Mr. McKinnon spoke to the assembled group, particularly to the boys on the unusual oDportunities they had for keeping phys- ically fit at a School with such facilities as University School. Mr. F. E. Winslow, O.B.E., Chairman of the Board of Govern- ors, thanked Mr. McKinnon for the outstanding work he was doing for the benefit of boys generally in the community and also for his kindness and service to the School on so many occasions. Mr. McKinnon then presented the prizes for the Track events of the day and the Boxing, the finals of which were held during the Easter Term.

However, although the summer term was rather longer than usual it was as busy as ever, and the number of cricket fixtures actually carried through was most disappointing. Bad weather delayed the opening, while a week end holiday and rain forced the cancellation of two matches. In all, five matches were played, three of which were won, one lost and one drawn. Four boys — Clifford, Cotter I, Duke and Shaw averaged over ten runs per innings with the bat, while Shaw and Mackenzie bore the brunt of the bowling. The fielding was quite keen without being brilliant, the out- standing feature being the very fast and accurate throwing from cover by Cotter I. Shipley I kept wicket adequately and his understanding with Cotter I resulted in many a "run out." M. L. Clifford was elected captain and made a very prom- ising beginning. D. V. Shaw assisted him as vice-captain. Colours were awarded to Clifford and Shaw, and the official team for the season was as follows: I\I. L. Clifford, D. V. Shaw, A. C. Cotter, R. M. Duke, G. R. Shipley, J. W. Shipley, D. A. Davison, J. B. Colquhoun, J. G. ?dyers, H. L. B. Mackenzie, G. T. L. Read. The Clayton Cup was won by Duke's team but only after surviving competition of the keenest kind from the side cap- tained by Shipley I. The Colts played six games but were not successful in winning any of them. The standard of play in the lower school was not high. The Prize Bat presented by the University School Incogs to the best all round cricketer in the School was won by 'M. L. Clifford. 16 THE CRICKET XI School vs. J. A. Gibb's Team The School was successful in the opening match against a scratch side captained by J. A. Gibbs. Clifford showed promise with the bat while Shaw was easily the best of the School bowlers taking 7 wickets for 11 J. A. GIBB'S TEAM D. Bryn-Jones, ct. Myers, b. Mackenzie 1 D. Moilliet, b. Shaw R. G.

Batting first the School scored slowly until Cotter came in to hit up 28 in quick time. Clifford declared at 76 for 6 and then Brentwood made a creditable effort to make the runs but they were 8 short with four wickets in hand at the end. Shaw had an off day with the ball but the School fielding was quite good and definitely superior to that of their opponents. UNIVERSITY SCHOOL Clifford, ct. Powell, b. Grist... 4 Myers, ct. & b.

The School fared badly with the bat, Clifford being the only one to reach double figures but Brentwood found the bowling of Mackenzie, who took 5 for 8, too much for them. The School fielding was keen. Cotter and Shipley claiming their usual victims on the at- tempted runs to cover. UNIVERSITY SCHOOL Clifford, ct. Hett, b. Drost 12 Myers, b.

Active in the field with good hands. Led the side with en- thusiasm and has learnt much of the art of captaincy. SHAW — By no means sound with either bat or ball but had some very good days with both. Hits the ball hard but as yet lacks both the defence and the patience to be a consistent scorer. Very active in the field and had a successful season. DUKE — Possessed few strokes but was always looking for runs, running well between the wickets and frequently scoring when others had failed. Keen and active in the field and pos- sessed good hands. A useful member of the side. SHIPLEY I — Again performed creditably behind the stumps. Alert intelligent and possessed safe hands. Improved somewhat with the bat but did not use his reach sufficiently, and hit across the ball. COTTER I — Had a successful season as a hitter but was quite lack- ing in defence. A very useful cover point from which position his fast and accurate throwing resulted in many a "run out." A fairly good catch. MYERS — Never came off with the bat and developed a suicidal "spoon" shot on the off. Developed into a useful bowler and was the side's first change. A good fielder both in the air and on the ground. COLQUHOUN — A promising player. Possessed strokes, if rather gentle ones, on the leg side and had a fair defence. Very keen, and when he develops the necessary confidence should do well. A bad judge of a run as yet. Is learning to bowl. MACKENZIE — Enjoyed a successful season with the ball and main- tained fair accuracy and length but without much "sting." He can drive the over pitched ball but has no idea of back play. Slow in the field. DAVISON— Has the ability to bowl and will do so if he can develop a vital interest and is willing to work. Lethargic in the field. SHIPLEY II — Improved considerably all round. He is keen to learn and should bowl if he perseveres. Requires confidence and practice with the bat. Useful and extremely willing in the field. READ — Nervous and lacking in confidence as yet, but he has cricket in him and will yet do very well with the bat. A poor judge of a run. Very fair in the field. 20 DUNCAN EMSLIE FOX Winner of the Donald Hugh Chapman Cup Awarded for the Best all round boj^ in the School under 14 on the basis of Character Scholarship and Athletics. 21 SWIMMING AND DIVING The Swimming and Diving Competitions were held on June 10th. As usual, Mr. McKinnon acted as judge. There was a good deal of keen competition especially in the Open Races. For the second year in succession, Gilbert was the winner of the Swimming. His time for the open 60 yards race was 37". Shipley I came second. The Diving for the second year in succession was won by Davison who was awarded his colour for Diving. GYMNASTICS The Gym competition was held on March 15th. Thirteen boys competed for the eight places. Mr. A. McKinnon was judge. He congratulated the boys on their work and awarded Captaincy of the Gym VIII to Clifford, who was awarded the Hay Croft Cup on Sports Day^ The remaining members of the team were : Pollard, Cotterll. Fox, Price, Sundt I, Colquhoun and Gilbert. THE CROSS COUNTRY RUN This year about sixty boys entered the contest. The win- ner again for the second time was Burnett who covered the course in h minute less than the previous year. He was a- warded the Old Boys' Cup on Sports Day. Wilson came in a good second. Barker I was the First Junior and was awarded the Robertson Cup. TENNIS As usual proved a popular game this year. The finals were held on June 14th. The singles were won by Duke who defeated Shaw 6 — 3, 6 — 0. The Doubles were won by Duke and Shaw who defeated Davison and Strang 8—5. 9—7. Duke was awarded the Barnacle Cup and Colours. 22 TRACK TEAM Our Track Team competed in the Preview Olympic Finals IMeet held at MacDonald's Park on June 7th. The competition was of a very high calibre indeed. Although no firsts were secured, our team did secure 5 seconds and 3 thirds on that occasion. The point winners were: Burnett placed 2nd in the Jr. 440 yards Shipley II 2nd in the Jr. 880 yds. Shaw 2nd in the Jr. 220 yds. 3rd in the Broad Jump Duke took 2nd place in both the 100 yds. & 220 yds. Price came 3rd in 100 yds. & 220 yds. Noel and Clifford showed much improvement in the mile and 880 yds. respectively. Pollard, the youngest member of the Team, did very well indeed considering that he was com- peting against youths two and three years his senior. GRASS HOCKEY This year the School were successful in arranging out- side matches and there was considerable interest displayed throughout the School. A very weak "Victoria College team provided the opposition in the first match, the School winning 8 — 0. Shaw and Duke were the leading scorers. For the second match Professor H. V. Warren brought over a Faculty and Graduate team from the University of B. C. in Vancouver. Some very even fast hockey was seen in this game which was won by the School by the odd goal in three. Both School goals came in the first half, Duke and Clifford being the scorers. U.B.C. opened their account just before half time and though they had a decided advantage during the second half, they were unable to score again and the School won 2 — 1. Cotter I, who captained the side was very effective at centre half, Bennett and ^Mackenzie did w-ell at back, while Shipley I kept goal splendidly. Of the forwards, Duke was the best. Mr. Cyril Jones very kindly refereed the game. 23 RUGBY FOOTBALL, 1947-48 At a meeting held early in the term R. ^1. Duke was elected captain for the season while K. W. Bennett was chosen to assist him as vice-captain. In addition to the above, only" A. C. Cotter and J. VV. Shipley of the previous year's team were available. The 1st XV enjoyed a most successful season winning seven of the twelve matches played, losing three and drawing two. This record was particularly creditable in view of the fact that Bennett, the vice-captain left at Christmas, and in consequence the vital stand-off half position had to be filled. Outstanding features contributing to the success were the keenness and enthusiasm of the side, the dash and opportun- ism of Duke in the centre, the fine defensive play of Bennett, the all round effectiveness of Shipley I, and the very solid work put in by the second row. Cotter I and Shipley II. Colours were awarded to R. M. Duke, A. C. Cotter, J. W. Shipley and G. R. Shipley, the remainder of the team being made up of: D. A. Davison, D. V. Shaw, E. P. Rimmer, M. L. Clifford, H. C. Burnett, E. J. Field, D. L. Taylor, D. K. Tresize, R. G. Pollard, R. I. Strang, and D. I. Hogarth. The Colts ranging in weight from 110 lbs to 130 lbs., played matches against both Shawnigan Lake School and Brentwood College. Both games were won quite easily and some good talent was observed. Myers, who captained the side, Bigelow, Brown II and Butler II being particularly prominent 24 FIRST FIFTEEN MATCHES School vs. Oak Bay High School The School opened the season at home on Oct. 23 against Oak Bay High School who won a very even game by a goal, a penalty goal and a try (11 pts. to a penalty goal and two tries (9 pts.). The ^chool scored all their points in the first half. Ship- ley I opened the scoring early in the game when he was suc- cessful with a penalty from dead in front. A little later Duke gathered a wild kick by the opposition and ran through on his own from half way to score between the posts. Shaw missed the easy conversion. Cotter I added to the School lead when he picked up a loose ball and ran in on his own. Shaw failed to convert. The High School then attacked and just before half time opened their account with a try by their right wing. The try was converted and the School led 9 — 5 at the interval. The High School had a decided advantage during the second half. The School seemed to tire somewhat and there was some very faulty defensive play on the left wing. After a period of fairly even play the High School were successful with a penalty from a difficult angle, and a little later forced the School to touch down twice. At this stage Bennett was prominent for the School, his tackling being of a high order. Towards the end it was all High School whose superiority in weight was beginning to tell, and shortly before no-side they obtained the winning try at the flag. For the School Bennett was outstanding behind the scrum: but for his excellent defensive play the School would have been overrun in the last ten minutes. Duke had a good match and Rimmer made a promising beginning. Among the for- wards Shipley I was a tower of strength, while Taylor and Shipley H turned in useful games. School vs. R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. College The School playing at home proved too strong for a R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. side winning by a goal and five tries (20 pts.) to a penalty goal (3 pts.). Exerting pressure from the opening whistle the School soon opened the scoring when Shaw took Bennett's pass to cross at the flag. He failed to convert his own try. A little later Shipley H was quick to seize a loose ball close to the line and force his way over for Shaw to add the extra points. A little later Shipley I crossed far out but Shaw failed to con- vert and the School led 11 — at the interval. 25 The College pressed for a period after half time but their outsides were not together and they seldom looked dangerous; their only success being fi-om a penalty given against the School for offside. Towards the end the School attacked strongly and in the best movement of the day Duke took Rim- mer's pass to run forty yards through the centre to score between the posts. Shaw missed the easy kick. A little later Duke made much ground on the left wing before giving to Shaw who ran in unopposed but again failed with the kick. The final try came when Bennett, who ran with great deter- mination throughout, burst through the centre ond ran to within five yards of the line before being tackled by the full back. From the resulting scramble Rimmer, who was up in support, won a race for the ball to score a try which Shipley I just failed to goal from a wide angle. Bennett. Duke and were the best of the School backs. Shipley I led the forwards who kicked badly and heeled slowly. School vs. Victoria High School A hard but rugged game played at home resulted in a win for he School by the only try scored. The first half was keenly contested with the School having slightly the better of the game, but apart from Bennett's out- standing try, was without incident. This try came when, fol- lowing a scrum twenty-five yards from the High School line, Bennett took the ball from his scrum help and going on the blind side, ran to within ten yards of the line where he was finally tackled. Regaining his feet immediately he took the ball at his feet the rest of the way in the face of severe op- position to score what proved to be the winning try. The High School had rather the better of the second half and the School were forced to touch down more than once. The School however had their chances and had Shaw accepted a wild kick by the opposition their margin would have been greater. Bennett, who was very determined both in attack and de- fence was outstanding behind the scrum while Shipley I was easily the pick of the forwards. School i'5. Brentwood College Playing away the School were well beaten by Brentwood by two goals, two penalty goals, and two tries (22 pts.) to one goal and a try (8 pts.). The game was played at a rare pace throughout and while not as skilfully played as matches of previous years, lacked little in respect of the keenness of the football and the spirit in which it was played. 26 Brentwood had rather the better of the first half ter- ritorially but at half time had only scored one try while the School had a goal and a try to their credit and led 8 — 3. The School opened the scoring; when some faulty passing in the Brentwood centre gave Duke the barest of chances. Snapping up a dropped pass he ran sixty yards through the centre to score close to the posts; a splendid individual effort. Shipley I goaled and the School led by five points. A little later Brent- wood opened their account a forward try being obtained far out, the kick failing. Although beaten forward the School defence was adequate and the work of Bennett unusually out- standing. His tackling was a joy to watch and McMahon, the effective Brentwood outside half was fully held in check. Pollard, filling in at full back for the School was severely tested and stood up very well under severe pressure. Shortly before half time the School increased their lead v/hen Shaw scored the best try of the day at the flag. From a line just outside the Brentwood twenty-five, Clifford got the ball avv'ay Bennett. Rjmmer and Duke both huddled and Shaw finished the movement with a fine burst of speed to cross at the corner. Shipley I failed to convert and the School led 8 — 3. Shortly after the restart, disaster overtook the School in the shape of two penalties given for offside directly under the posts. Both came as a result of weak clearances by School backs and both were goaled. From these penalties the School never recovered and Brentwood dominated the second half. In the last fifteen minutes two goals and a try were obtained and Brentwood won 22 — 8. The Brentwood forwards were far faster and heavier than the School pack who gave a coura- geous display but could not match their opponents either in the "tight" or the "loose." As a result the Brentwood backs had constant possession during the second half and the School outsides wore themselves out in gallant defence. Bennett was excellent throughout, time and again he saved the School when all seemed lost, and his effective and courageous play will be long remembered. Duke and Shaw did many good things and the outsides as a group held their own. The for- wards were overwhelmed by bigger and faster men but the whole side played with spirit and never gave up. A grand match. School vs. R.C.N.-R.C.A.F. College This game was played at the Royal Canadian Naval and Royal Canadian Air Force College and con by the home side by two goals and two tries (16 pts.) to a try (3 pts.). The School were five regulars short through injury but gave a fair display and had more of the game than the score would indicate. 27 The College, well served by their halves, scored a goal and a try in the first half and had by far the better of the play. The School handling and passing were weak, and there was too much hesitant tackling in the centre. Immediately after the restart the College went further ahead when some very bad running by Price resulted in a try close to the posts. Goal was kicked. The School then came to life and had the better of the game. After a period of steady pressure, Shaw being particularly prominent, this player accepted a pass from Bennett, and running with deter- mination scored at the flag. Shipley I failed to convert. Just before the end the College obtained the final try which was unconverted. The School, while not good enough to win, had the luck of the game against them, particularly when Price appeared to have won a race for the ball in the College in-goal and a touch dov.-n was awarded. School vs. Shawnigax Lake School Playing away the School defeated Shawnigan Lake School by 3 goals and a try (18 pts.) to (0). For some time play was very even but mid way through the half the School opened their account when Rimmer found an opening. Dashing through, he gave to Duke who ran from half way to score between the posts for Shipley I to convert. A little later Bennett blocked a kick near the Shawiiigan line and won a race fro the ball to put the School further ahead. Shipley I failed to convert. Just before half time Bennett scored his second try- — a sure determined run through the centre putting him over between the posts for Shipley I to add the extra points. The second half was much more even. Shawnigan, whose forwards packed well and heeled quickly, gave a good display and threatened several times. In addition they were awarded a penalty under the School posts but the kick was missed. The only try of the second half came when Duke kicked up a loose ball and sped down the wing to cross at the flag and score between the posts. Shipley I kicked his third goal, and the School won 18 — 0. Tne backs while good individually, were not well together, and Shaw was badly neglected during the second half. School vs. Oak Bay High School This was the second game of the season between the sides and this time victory went to the School by a goal and tvs'o penalty goals (11 pts.) to three tries (9 pts.). 28 Shortly after the start the High School were penalized for offside and Shipley I dropped a good gooal. For Fome time play was very even but neither set of backs combined well.e However before half time the School line had been crossed twice — both tries resulting from poor defensive plays in their twenty-five. Neither try was converted. The School replied through Cotter who dribbled through following a line out in the Oak Bay twenty-fiive. This was a good individual effort, a just reward for keen play. Shipley I added the extra points, and the School led 8 — 6 at half time. Play during the second half was definitely in Oak Bay's favour but their backs finished badly and the School were saved by good tackling and defensive kicking by Bennett. The School threatened however and a fine run by Duke only just failed. Another penalty against the High School gave Shipley I his second penalty goal and ended the scoring as far as the School was concerned. Just before no-side the High School scored their final try but the kick, though from an easy angle, was missed, and the School won 11 — 9. Shipley I was easily the best of the School forwards, and his kicking was the de- ciding factor in a very even game. Cotter I and Pollard were also prominent in the pack. Behind the scrum Bennett was, as usual, a tower of strength. In the closing stages when the pressure was keen his defensive kicking was invaluable. Shaw was starved and had little opportunity. Davison, at full back, was not happy, and was most shaky under pressure. School vs. Victoria College (Intermediate) An extremely high and bitter north wind ruined what promised to be an excellent game. The first half was evenly contested with play largely of a forward nature. Duke made one or two nice runs through the centre, and from one of these, Taylor who followed up fast, was able to gain possession and throw himself over to score a try which Shipley I failed to improve. The two sides tried hard to play football after half time but conditions were too difficult, and the game was rarely better than an evenly matched scramble. The College equal- ized before the end, a forward scoring far out but neither side looked like scoring again and a 3 — 3 draw resulted. Shipley I, Cotter I and Taylor were prominent among the School forwards, while of the backs Duke alone ever looked dangerous. 29 THE RUGBY XV School vs. Brentwood College This game was played at home under apalling weather and ground conditions and resulted in a scoreless draw. Play was entirely of a forward nature and some very strenuous work was put in by both sides. Behind the scrum the School gave the impression that under decent conditions they would be more effective. Play during the first half was slightly in the School's favour, while after half time the ball seldom left the area between the twenty-five yard line. Both sides tried their level best, and with some success, to make a game of it. The Shipley brothers and Cotter I were outstanding for the School. School vs. Brentwood College Played on the School grounds this game was as usual contested with rare spirit, and won by the School by two tries (6 pts.) to 0. The ball was a difficult one, but no rain fell during the game and some three quarter work was seen. 30 Early in the game Duke the School captain injured his ankle and was of little use in attack thereafter; he defended pluckily however retiring to the wing mid way through the second half. The School exerted pressure from the start and although the Brentwood line was not seriuosly in danger some promis- ing movements in which Shipley I, Burnett and Taylor par- ticipated were noticed. The first real thrill came mid way through the first half when a Brentwood centre went clean through the middle on his own and beat Davison the School full back, only to be tackled by Burnett and Cotter I who came from nov.'here to save the day. The School primed again how- ever and following some keen play in the Brentwood twenty- five Clifford tried to force his way over following a scrum near the line. This attempt failed but a little later, from a similar scrum Clifford whipped the ball out to Rimmer and Shaw accepted a scoring pass to cross the line offer a short run. Shipley I failed to kick goal and the School had to be content with a lead of three points at half time. After the breather play was largely confined to midfield. what advantage there was lying with the School whose backs huddled better than their opponents, and were more lively. Burnett was very prominent at this stage his play being spirited and eflfective. The School forwards were good in the "loose" and several good rushes were seen. From one of these, w^hich was led by Shipley I, Burnett was able to beat the de- fence to the ball and to score near the flag. Shipley I failed to improve this try and the School won 6 — 0. Without exception the School had played vigorous football and they were at least six points better on the day's play. Shipley I, Cootter, and Shipley II were outstanding among a pack who fully held their heavier opponents in every phase of forward play. Behind the scrum Rimmer handled the three quarters particularly Burnett who gave a most promising dis- play, did some good things. School vs. Old Boys (Victoria) The Victoria Old Boys were no match for the School who had no trouble in winning by two goals and five tries (25 pts. ) to 0. From the start the School exerted pressure and with their marked superiority behind the scrum it was evident that the Old Boys' defence would be severely tested. Shipley I opened the scoring for the School, and before half time Shaw had crossed after a moveme-nt in which Rimmer and Bennett par- ticipated, while Gilbert,, who had an excellent match at right 31 wing three qcarter. scored on two occasions. The score might well have been greater at this time but for the excellent tack- ling of Bryn-Jones. The Old Boys' full back. After half time, play w^as rather more even, but the School were always on top, and before the end had scored tries through Taylor, Burnett and Shaw. Shipley I had an off day converting but two of the seyen tries scored, and the School won 25—0. School vs. Old Boys (Vancouver) This game was played on the main ground at the Uni- versity of B. C. in Vancouver, and won by the School by two goals (10 pts.) to three tries (9 pts.). The Old Boys had by far the better of the play during the first fifteen minutes. Williams who was impressive at out- side half went through on his own to score the first try be- tween the posts while a little later Alan LeMarquand scored to finish a three-quarter movement. The School opened their account when Price finished off a movement in which there was some nice short passing by both forwards and backs. Ship- ley I goaled from dead in frone and as neither Old Boys' try was converted the Old Boys led 6 — 5 at half time. After the restart the Old Boys went further ahead when Corry scored at the flag. The try was not converted. Play was very ragged for the rest of the game but shortly before the end the School backs produced one of their few^ decent movements of the day and Duke scored for Shipley I to goe.'. from a fairly wide angle. In winning by a single point the School were far from impressive and actually fortunate to win. The Old Boys had the better of the game and poor place kicking lost them the match. RUGBY CHARACTERS DUKE (Captain and Centre Three-quarter) — An improved player whose elusiveness and great speed brought him many a try in the centre. Possessed fair hands, but his passing was erratic and his kicking weak. Not a good defender but fairly effect- ive despite his lack of weight. A very keen and enthusiastic captain. DAVISON (Full Back)— A fair kick and a useful tackle, but far too slow in gathering, and weak in face of forwards with the ball at their feet. Requires another year's experience. CLIFFORD (Scrum Half) — Had a successful season at the base of the scrum when his play, if somewhat deliberate, was always intelligent. Possessed good hands but his kicking was very weak indeed. Considerably improved in defence. Has a sound knowledge of the game and is a player of real promise. 32 RIMMER (Stand off Half) — Avigorous and courageous player. His hands were not good, but he was a fair passer and quite un- selfish. A weak kick, but a very depedanble tackle and the best of the backs in this department. FIELD (Wing Three-quarter) — New to the game but developed con- siderably. Possessed a useful hand off and ran well on oc- casion. Hesitant in defence, and somewhat lacking both in determination and condition. BURNETT (Centre Three-quarter) — Came on greatly toward the close of the season and is a player of promise. Possessed fair hands and a useful turn of speed. Improved defensively and is learning to kick with judgment. Has keenness and ability and lacks experience only. SHAW (Wing Three-quarter) — Played both as a centre and as a wing, but was more convincing in the latter position. A strong determined runner he finished movements well. He combined poorly, holding on far too long, and apart from his kicking his defensive play was very bad. TAYLOR — Filled the "hook" position with success. Played the game intelligently and with obvious enjoyment. Possessed good hands. A very steady consistent player. TRESIZE — A hard working front row man. Active in the "loose," a good tackle, and vastly improved generally. SHIPLEY I — Fulfilled the promise shown last year and developed into a splendid forward. Excelled in the line out where his great height and sure hands were used to advantage. The most consistent kicker, both place and drop, to represent the School for years. Played keen and intelligent football throug- out the season and never disappointed. HOGARTH — New to the game but came on considerably and did well at "break." Tackled well and always gave of his best COTTER I — A fine forward whose work in the second row was of a high order. A great pusher in the "tight," full of dash and well directed effort in the "loose," and very useful defensively. Played the game in a splendid spirit. His place will indeed be hard to fill. SHIPLEY II — Another excellent forward who demonstrated the value of honest push in the second row. A steady and depend- able player of great promise. POLLARD — An extremely effective back row forward of whom all too little was seen owing to injuries. Vigorous, determined, and the best tackier on the side. Played occasionally at full back and gave creditable displays full of courage and judg- ment. STRANG — A promising forward with a good knowledge of the game. Rather slow in the "loose," and deficient in defence as yet, but played intelligently and unselfishly at all times. 33 THE CADET CORPS 1947-1948 The following appointments were approved by the Head- master: C. Capt. ------- A. C. Cotter C Lieut. ------- p. Paterson C/Lieut. ------- G. R. Shipley C/C.S.M. ------- W. J. Shipley C C.Q.M.S. ------ H. Mackenzie The official strength of the Corps this year was 50. By incorporating an additional 11 who were under the age limit we had two sizeable platoons and a Band of 12. During the early part of the year much pressure was brought to bear on the group activities. Five signallers were successful in obtaining their junior Morse certificates togther with a cheque in the sum of $5.00. Cpl. Hogarth is to be con- gratulated warmly on the untiring efforts he made with the St. John Ambulance class. Nine of his ten passed the require- ments and were presented with certificates in due course. The responsibilities of the Knots and Lashings v;ere undertaken by Capt. A. C. Cotter, who proved himself to be an extremely capable officer in every phase of Cadet work. J. Shipley is to commended for the efficient manner in which he fulfilled the difficult positions of C.S.^NL and P.T. Instructor. As such he was most dependable. CADET INSPECTION 34 Our 42nd Annual Inspecion was held on May 3rd and we were privileged to have as our Inspecting Officer Col. T. E. Snow, whose father had carried out a similar duty 88 years ago. The latter, despite his years, made a special effort to be present on this occasion — a gesture that was more than appreciated by those present. The Ceremonial Company and Rifle Drill were of a very high order and much interest was shown in the group activities. As a Corps we were rated 959^ efficient. This high mark was attained only through the com- bined efforts of all. The Band, under Sergt. Duke once again proved itself in- dispensable and a large amount of the success vouchsafed the Corps must go to those members, who with their instruments, enhanced the marching precision of the Corps. Cadet Discharge Certificates are now available. These are primarily intended for those who are leaving us and who intend to join one of the branches of His Majesty's Forces. Since they indicate the length of service in the Corps and the work covered they should help to curtail much of the pre- liminary foot-slogging and rifle drill that normally await the raw recruit. xjS^ K ?»!;; 5*y i r- *M « »> y c THE BAND 35 • Z • •V ; • • • ••• « • ; • » ♦ a SHOOTING 1947-1948 Recreational shooting, which started late in 1946, was carried out extensively this year and as a result 33 Cadets were awarded their 1st Class Badge, 5 their Expert and 2 their Sniper. This type of training, laid down by N.D.H.Q. Ottawa, provides each cadet with a greater number of rounds and in addition makes it possible for him to win a different badge as each category is successfully completed. In the writer's opinion it is an excellent course for the beginner but lacks finesse when it comes to exacting the best from the more ex- perienced shots. The results of last year's Shooting in the D.C.R.A. were not received until September and so could not be inserted in the School ^Magazine. Of the two teams entered, the "A" Team an average of 919^ came 4th, in B. C. out of 42. Of the 580 schools firing across Canada we were placed 112th. The scores showed much keen competition. Had our average been bettered by 1.25% we would have atteined 1st place in B. C. and been in the 80's for all Canada. We must keep on trying harder. Our "B"Team averaged 87.967r. This year we averaged 91.25%.^ Second class medals were claimed for and received by Hogarth, [Mackenzie. Shaw and Shipley II for hav- ing averaged 90^^ or over in the 3 shoots. ]\Iost unfortun- ately a dislocated shoulder prevented A. Cotter, one of the cainstays of the Team, from participating in the third shoot. We have as yet received no official results for the R.il.C. Shoot for April 1947, when the best ten scores out of twenty brought us an average of 94%. Old Boys will learn with regret that the Cadet Author- ities have withdrawn all the B.S.A. No. 8 rifles and substituted the Long Branch No. 7. The new rifle is heavier, longer and boasts a bolt and magazine. From an accuracy point of view 36 it cannot be beaten, althouKh there are some who would have it otherwise. Some very excellent scores have been made, particularly by Davison, Mackenzie, Cotter I and Shipley II. This year the Harvey INIemorial Rifle was won by H. Mac- kenzie, the Harvey Challenge Cup for the highest score in the D.C.R.A. by D. Davison and the Don Braidwood Cup for the best Intermediate by R. I. Kingham, who was the best Junior last year and who incidentally narrowly missed a place on the School team. Shooting Colours were awarded to A. C. Cotter and H. Mackenzie. The following were selected to represent the School VIII: M. L. Clifford H. L. Mackenzie A. C. Cotter P. Paterson D. Davison G. R. Shipley D. I. Hogarth D. K. Tresize 37 OLD BOYS NOTES Among the recent changes in command released recently by the Royal Canadian Navy a new appointment and pro- motion is announced for Capt. \V. B. Creery, C.B.E., R.C.N. , presently officer commanding H.M.C.S. Royal Roads. Capt. Creery is to become Chief of Naval Personnel at Ottawa and is promoted to the rank of Commodore. The Appointment is to take effect on August 16, 1948. Commodore Creery entered the Royal Naval College from University School in 1914, and served through the Great War as a midshipman. During the World War he commanded H.M.C.S. Eraser, and later H.r.I.C.S. Prince Robert. In 1946 he was appointed to command H M.C.S. Royal Roads, the Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Canadian Air Force College in Victoria. We shall miss his cheerful hospitality at Royal Roads, and his faithful attendance at Old Boys' gatherings. All Old Boys v.-ish him every success in Ottawa. Other Old Boys mentioned in the Royal Canadian Navy's promotion list are Commander E. P. Tisdall and Lieut. Com- mander E. S. Boak, D.S.C. The former, who is Director Gen- eral of Naval Ordnance at Ottav,'a, is promoted to Cantain while the latter, who has been navigating officer aboard H.M.C.S. Magnificent, becomes a Commander, and is to take up a new appointment in Dartmouth, N.S., that of command of the R.C.N. Air Station. Congratulations to R. G. R. Dalziel who has been awarded the John Sheppard Memorial Trophy. This trophy was pre- sented to the Oak Bay Wanderers Football Club by Mrs. C. F. Corbett in memory of her son John Sheppard w^ho was killed with the R.A.F. early in the war. It is awarded annually to the player, '"who best serves the club in sportsmanship, duty and honour." The University School Incogs Cricket Club is functioning as usual and is holding its own in league play in Victoria. TheWenman brothers and Owen Morgan were chosen to rep- resent Victoria against Vancouver on July 1st. Apparently Paul Rowe still retains much of his speed and skill on the football field. While playing last season for Cal- gary Stampeders against Winnipeg Blue Bombers he ran 90 yards through the opposition to secure something called a "touchdown." [Why didn't he kick in his own twenty-five ?-Ed.] We understand that Henry Coe is now a proud parent and that his infant daughter answers to the name of Kali Coe. It would seem that Henry has changed but little. 38 BIRTHS DALZIEL— To "Sir. and Mrs. W. H. Dalziel on Aug. 12, 1948. a son. SOULSBY— To -Mr. and I^Irs.
